2 & 3 Day Weekend Retreats

Our weekend retreats, based on the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius, provide retreatants the opportunity through a variety of types of prayer (silent, communal, guided, reconciliation service, faith sharing, the Ignatian Examen and liturgy) to quiet down and examine where God is at work in the world and their lives. Retreatants are free to attend whichever of these exercises that are helpful to them, or they may use their time profitably as they see fit. Time in the schedule and physical settings of the retreat center offer one solitude, nature trails, reflection/prayer areas and numerous opportunities to be alone with yourself and God.

All retreats begin at 6:15 p.m. with a reception and dinner and end 2 or 3 days later at 1 p.m. following Mass and lunch. All retreats are silent, unless otherwise noted; after the Friday dinner, silence is maintained between individuals so that each retreatant has time and space to connect deeply with God. Retreats are directed by a certified spiritual director who provides a series of presentations designed to assist you with your meditation, reflection, and spiritual journey. Accommodations include a private bedroom and bath and all meals. All 2-night and 3-night retreats are open to both men and women unless otherwise noted.
